In the years since their self-titled, 2010 album, Interpol have been relatively quiet. Leader singer Paul Banks released his second solo album, Banks in 2012, but Interpol was still missing from the festivals and record stores of the world. Not anymore. The perennially black-suited rockers are back in 2014 with their fifth studio album, El Pintor. The album title works as an anagram of the band name, as well as a reconfiguration of the sounds that made the band famous to begin with.
With the band gearing up for a worldwide tour, which includes a performance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Interpol seem poised to reclaim their name.
While they are in Austin, the band will also play Stubb’s on Sunday, October 5th, with support from the British psych rock band Temples. With a slew of hit songs and a new album, to run through, this is sure to be a show to remember. For tickets, click here.
